Indulge in National Guacamole Day with Cocina 214’s Famous Guacamole Recipe
Guacamole is personal. That may sound a bit dramatic, but rarely do two people prepare it exactly the same way. As with all foods, over time it takes on the personality of individual who is preparing it.
A variety of ingredients can be added; tomatoes, sour cream, garlic, and I have recently spied a recipe with the addition of yellow corn and black beans. I was curious, gave it a whirl and it was tasty.
Now that we have guacamole, chips and salsa, it’s time to break out the Casa Noble blanco Tequila and let the festivities begin!
